I thought they were belts, not gears! Wasn't that the whole problem?

Hans,
I figured we hear something while you are on Holiday break? Put a set of skis on that huge pink airplane and go fly it!

Thanks,
Glenn

Finals get done next Wednesday the 21st. I'll be home for a couple weeks, but I think getting the required number of people out at the field to put the thing together when it is cold and snowing would be hard. Bolting pull-pull cables and stuff with gloves on would be tricky. We'll wait for spring.

Hogster, in the US they seem to have 'finals' every 5 mins! I don't quite get it. They're not like the finals at the end of your degree in the UK.

Heh! What exactly are finals anyway? I have exams at the end of each term/semester which test us on the modules we've studied in the previous 10 or so weeks .... Are exams 'finals'?
